Melanie's Cards

Melanie is involved in the arts. I don't know all the details, but for awhile now she has been passing on some great ideas to Amy who would in turn send them to me and Jodi. I am already curious as to how she did this background technique. I love the black gingham ribbon as well.

  1. Thanks Miranda for the kind words. The background technique is pretty simple. I used a cross hatching technique with an olive colored pencil on the Old Olive cardstock. Then for added depth, I gently brushed the cardstock with an Old Olive ink pad.

    As far as my background, I have worked in the advertising and the creative arts field for many years in various roles: graphic designer, art director and now I am a Studio Manager for inServ, an inVentiv Health Company. As a hobby, I have loved to stamp, making cards and scrapbooking for years. I am excited to be in your card club!
